Great presentation on strorm spotter basics with practical scenarios. 2020-08-27 13:56:38

The photo quiz at the end is REALLY helpful! It would be great if the photos earlier in the quiz were labeled for clarity. Also, please slow down the wind graphic so students have time to read and then observe the graphic.
RENorman 2020-04-24 19:59:31

Good lessons to refresh memory and teach .
polishpicl 2020-04-09 14:35:53

Great lesson,, I am applying for my spotter number because I am a Amature radio operator and also help in ARES which is a Ham radio Emergency operating system too.
king230 2019-07-23 03:18:14

Very in-depth, I was impressed! Informative, too -- I learned quite a lot! I like the booster questions, too. They make me realize I don't know every darned thing there is to know.
KE8LBN 2018-12-13 15:41:04

Very informative and relevant in my area of operations. Thank you for the retraining and I most likely will revisit this lesson with my children at some point to educate them as well.
KE4KMQ 2018-12-09 21:39:48

This is a must for anyone living anywhere near the coast.

I love this site to take my quize on here
mertzdcjr 2018-11-24 15:43:12

The old NWS Basic and Advanced SKYWARN Spotter Training courses were much more easy to comprehend and complete. I've been taking SKYWARN training every two years for probably eight years now, and I found this presentation lacking in clarity. See my previous comments. The answers to the next question "What is your prior experience with the subject of this lesson?" tells me this course was not made for SKYWARN spotters since there is no answer option that includes anything alluding to a "volunteer spotter". 2018-11-23 22:40:50

Great learning tool
Extraham 2018-11-23 12:59:24

Good lesson. Interesting and informative.
steve1969 2018-11-23 06:44:53

great learning tool, very specific to good photos.
dkshadow9498 2018-11-15 13:45:11

Provided the necessary information and was easy to understand. Some of the Photos weren't the best, but did not affect it overall.
swannert 2018-11-14 12:28:08

Good overall knowledge. Would like a more indepth training also.

The lesson helped to understand the principals very well
Sheepdog 2018-11-02 10:49:14

Cloud galleries are good examples, but could be better described and shown in more context.

dereksj18 2018-10-25 11:18:59

KG4QMH 2018-10-22 20:51:55

Definitely recommend keeping the photo gallery handy and reviewing/comparing to observable weather phenomena.
tsnicely 2018-10-22 14:24:44

The scenario based learning was appropriate to the material presented
ITR-CFL 2018-10-22 12:18:58

The practice quiz/review answers were difficult to determine is they we referring the the situation being presented or questions for general overall comprehension. For example, towards the end of this lesson it asks about what should be reported and the question is looking for the answer to the general question...not the situation just presented.
flyrdie 2018-10-22 11:01:16

Good, basic convective weather information.

BBPD242 2018-10-17 09:51:21

Very Helpful and informative. Pictures really help the learning process and having a different variety of storms and clouds helped answer some personal questions I've had for a bit

Was very understanding lessons.
ClassyCass87 2018-10-11 12:50:15

Very well put-together and relevant. Highly recommend to anyone!
NewRiverGorge Bob 2018-10-11 11:14:08

Some of the questions lack the essential information to answer them definitively. Some questions are vague and have several possibilities for answers. I also disagree with some of the "correct" answers. Making good quiz questions is not easy as this lesson illustrates.
braddakine 2018-10-11 03:44:51

Great information and informative for Storm Spotting and Reporting to NWS. Very useful information for Ham Operators and Communicators in Emergency Management.
Firefighter3932 2018-10-10 21:07:47

Draw lines on pictures to highlight cloud features.
hunterhick1 2018-10-07 18:03:05

GOOD Course
dblanco420 2018-10-02 10:05:53

More interactive activities could help with understanding of emergency situations as well as what to do in those situations
kd9ldd 2018-10-01 13:37:05

Photos of storm clouds with descriptive captions underneath is nice, but photos of storm clouds with identifying labels on the various components of the pictured storm would be more beneficial.
funnlchasr 2018-09-29 14:52:17

I especially think a better visual on the difference between a vertical updaraft and an angled updraft should be considered.
Suzier18 2018-09-29 11:27:36

I enjoyed the video clips, photos and information learned. I will now be more able to visually understand cloud formations.
Galumpasaurus 2018-09-26 21:12:03

Study before taking quiz.
retired cop 3626 2018-09-26 10:02:25

I enjoyed the lesson, learned lots of information and should help me in my duties with emergency management.
Junior378 2018-09-25 23:24:08

I would make more video sections less reading
boltz369 2018-09-24 16:25:48

Great for being part of the solution and not the problem.
clausont 2018-09-20 08:25:23

Good lesson, but could use better details in some areas.
ascordova8 2018-09-20 02:28:04

Definitely have a better understanding of weather and types of communications and things to look for now.
jared.rudacille 2018-09-19 22:06:23

More videos of severe weather and information on generally safe locations to be in relation to radar coverage of the storm track to avoid the severe portion of the storm to come right over us (expand ACES with radar assistance).
DONHENSON 2018-09-19 14:20:34

deniselucas 2018-09-18 19:46:03

if you could draw red circles around some of the identifying features of the clouds it would make it very easy to determine what is indicated.

good content
ke8jwj 2018-08-09 13:59:02

The information in this lesson was informative, but I felt it was lacking in the technical detail. The questions and quizzes were focused on cloud specifics, but the lesson didn't provide the detail necessary to fully understand the clouds.I think a few slides detailing the anatomy of the storm cloud before showing actual pictures would help. Video of clouds and storms with commentary would have been helpful in understanding the dynamics of the clouds.
robertn7 2018-08-08 23:33:06

I would like to see some arrows pointing to specific areas of the clouds, or circles of the parts of the clouds illustrated in the pictures.

Some of the pictures are confusing to people with no previous weather training. Perhaps the addition of arrows pointine to the specific feature being discussed would help.

Better description or “cartoon” of what the Cloud type is along with an real world picture. Video would also be a good addition instead of a slide show.
mackcb1 2018-06-26 13:49:11

its like I learned a few things
jtbjes 2018-06-26 13:18:43

quiz should not have multiple vague possible answers.
PayneL 2018-06-26 00:24:42

Good training
bobpete 2018-06-25 20:31:41

clips would not play, had to guess at answers.
chuxpilot 2018-06-25 17:03:56

A little more focus on meterology would be helpful.
johnstonmi 2018-06-25 11:22:01

N6AHB 2018-06-25 10:18:40

good information
Dannika-LaChelle 2018-06-24 22:51:54

Focus on difference between awareness and communication is key. I would like to see more in depth information on report requirements.
cbaldacci 2018-06-24 14:36:37

I would highly advise anyone wanting to be a storm spotter to take this course.
Klolson3 2018-06-20 20:38:32

Definitely added more insight into the characteristics of severe storms All good information
F3chasers 2018-06-19 18:27:18

Taught me a lot in an easy way!
w4spj 2018-06-19 15:38:26

An outstandingly produced lesson that goes deeply into weather situations
paulwyse 2018-06-19 10:55:25

Arrows or marks to identify parts of the pictures noting specific parts of a storm or cloud would be useful.

The photo quiz is excellent and having 154 images to reference is helpful.
KenNunley 2018-06-08 18:48:30

Great course. I enjoyed going through it, I probably missed some things so I’m going to study it again. This course is worth the effort to study.
W5AJO 2018-06-07 20:11:46

Exam is very straight forward. All topics on exam were discussed in the program. Great info and refresher.

fredric.smith 2018-06-05 13:08:26

Very informative
wleue 2018-06-05 10:07:44

This lesson was particularly good at helping me identify the various components of a thunderstorm, and also in helping my understanding that photographs alone are often not sufficient to correctly identify certain features.
LWilliams33 2018-06-03 21:39:26

I though I knew what I needed to know, but this class proved me wrong. I am amazed! 2018-06-03 18:21:47

RobSmith1 2018-06-03 15:45:31

Very well layed out and user friendly. I enjoyed taking this class.
PassionForStorms 2018-06-03 15:45:03

I have always wanted to be a meteorologist chaser and storm spotter! I have seen wall clouds and rotation in the past and all the time, even last weekend there was a rotating funnel here in Germantown with no warning and there were kids out playing. Also Just different storms that have popped up this year already here in Ohio and there was nothing I could do about it. Nothing happened but could have and there was no warning!!! Taking this class was the best thing for me! I can now warn others and have a faster warning put out to save lives! This is the best class I have ever took! I can't wait to warn other's about severe weather.

Overall a good course. Some of the quiz questions need tweaking....three specifically are vaque concerning a given scenario and can be answered several different ways depending upon what the curriculum author was thinking at the time and failed to say completely in the question.
mitchellcrazyeye 2018-05-29 12:11:53

Great refresher. Thank you,.
thundersnow 2018-05-27 12:31:20

This course was excellent. A great introduction to clouds, formation and different weather phenomenon. Also clearly explains the role and responsibility of a trained strom spotter. The photos and visual aids were a huge help in showing the differences in clouds and drafts. I particularly like the way I can go back and review again the information. Thank you!
jbush 2018-05-27 07:22:34

Use people to teach... death by power point stinks. I consider myself an amateur weather geek and this computer presentation totally blows and is uninteresting without human interaction.
2018-05-26 11:14:16

Well done...complete, concise and understandable
mccweather 2018-05-25 03:05:08

A wealth of information on the basics of storms.

joboomartin 2018-05-24 06:33:22

Goo course
BluRie 2018-05-23 21:35:22

Having videos of some of the cloud formations would be helpful for comparison. Particularly when talking about rotation or the rain shafts. Seeing it in motion may be easier for some to fully understand.
vc1921 2018-05-23 10:01:37

pepper7185 2018-05-22 18:47:17

kc4wsk 2018-05-21 07:59:17

Descriptions of cloud formations are subjective at best. Arrows indication features described would be helpful. I could not definitively locate described features.

KT Wolf 2018-05-16 16:51:07

This is about as good as the third draft when the fifth draft is the final version. Lots of useful stuff; lots of spots where the lesson-developer doesn't know that they're being unclear because they've forgotten what the level of common knowledge is.
Shakyt 2018-05-16 16:24:00

The information was good and laid out well, very easy to understand.
cubby4 2018-05-12 00:19:43

I feel some of the questions were worded in a way that did not lend itself to the correct answers. Something being said is close is in the eye of the beholder.
RECONACE 2018-05-11 14:33:00

This lesson presents elements in "Spotting" that a storm spotter really needs to get straight in his/her head. The ACES concept is paramount in learning and using.

LCCCTeach 2018-05-03 08:35:06

I wish the question below this one "What is your prior experience with the subject of this lesson?" included "Other" with the ability to enter more information and to be able to check more than one answer - I believe my 35 years as a trained weather watcher/reporter for NWS is important, as well as the meteorology courses I took at the university (which were nearly 40 years ago).
Jeff James 2018-05-02 18:41:52

k_conklin 2018-05-02 16:13:57

I thought it was helpful to have many varying pictures of storms along with detailed captions.
kpumpy 2018-05-02 15:14:57

The online method is fantastic. I trained as a spotter 11 years ago but learned some new things here, and learned some criteria for severe weather have changed since then.
K3OZB 2018-05-02 05:12:35

I have a bad habit of reading and anticipating the question, I missed questions because they would bounce from 'select the best answer' to 'select all that apply' . Not really your fault but just a thought.
tomcoombs 2018-05-02 03:49:09

An interesting course.
kscardsfan 2018-05-01 21:44:42

W4BNT 2018-04-26 14:13:07

I find it difficult to see cloud rotation in clouds from still shots. If you could use more video when showing these formations it would greatly increase understanding.
Edgard Rios 2018-04-25 14:24:32

It was nice I think they had amazing pictures and being in a climatology class definitely helped me understand this a little more then I probably needed to.

ShockBucks 2018-04-11 13:45:57

I gained some valuable information in this lesson for weather spotting. However, I was not able to clearly identify many of the elements alleged to be outlined in the photo gallery.

billsalina 2018-03-29 22:19:11

I really enjoyed this course. I especially liked the photo gallery at the end that had explanations of what should have been noticed in the photos (you look at the photo, then click a button to reveal a list of features).
Leah.Herpst 2018-03-29 21:45:54

Wrestleman 2018-03-29 21:23:38

I would pass this on
plwyluda 2018-03-29 12:24:04

Would prefer better identification of specific features in a storm cloud. Maybe use arrows that point out specific features when discussing them. I found it hard to identify what specific feature this course was presenting on coulds.
Socialfrek 2018-03-29 11:18:05

This is a very nice lesson plan but i would like to see more illustrations after answering a question i think that would give a good guideline base for people.
enlightest 2018-03-28 19:50:40

Living in the "Tornado Alley" I found it exetremely helpful and important to further my knowledge on this type of weather.

josechr1 2018-03-28 13:00:20

Annahanson 2018-03-28 09:56:41

It would be helpful for arrows to be included on the pictures to show the specific portion of the photo that is being discussed.
kgrant10507 2018-03-27 19:21:23

Very easy to navigate and easy to comprehend lessons
Temps_360 2018-03-27 15:02:26

Very easy to understand. Did a wonderful job of giving examples on each topic to guide student in actual dangerous situations.
rprechtl 2018-03-27 13:20:33

The learning points were presented AFTER the quiz questions on them. It would be much more effective if the points were made BEFORE asking the questions. Then the questions would reinforce the key points. Also, eliminate questions that ask "which of the following..." and then have a subjective set of points to choose from. These do not display application, if that is what was intended.
RichMiller 2018-03-27 12:50:02

great basic understanding...
clepak 2018-03-26 11:00:47

Video instead of still photos would be better. It is still very informative though. Pay particular attention to ACES
gbl 2018-03-26 02:19:18

great class
Steven I Lochala 2018-03-25 18:13:34

Informative. I have seen clouds before but never new what I was looking at. Now, with practice, I think I can start to apply what I have learned. It was also good to bring back lessons from "Role of the Skywarn Spotter." ACES, and 7 key reporting requirements.
catt129 2018-03-25 08:13:27

I found this lesson very informative and lots of chances to go back and review many photos and scenarios
Jbeltz 2018-03-24 17:40:17

This lesson was a bit tougher than the first lesson but it was a good challenge. I liked having actual video footage in the lesson. I don't know if that be used more often but I liked it a little better than still photos.
Spikeydo 2018-03-24 11:52:37

maybe more video and inserted diagrams or pointers of situations
markashley 2018-03-23 17:47:05

Good lesson with tons of storm cloud related photos.

If you have an interest in weather, then you NEED this course !!!
zachska87 2018-03-22 10:19:14

Great intro to the basics
Thund3r 2018-03-21 20:36:17

I personally like the way you don't have to listen to the situation videos and can read them. This provides options to people to choose the best way they learn/retain information. I also like the visual aids for the cloud structures.
Sensei 2018-03-21 14:35:48

Good lesson. Informative.
radarcat 2018-03-21 12:37:17

Over the past five years, I have taken the live classes by NWS personnel. This year, I was not able to get to a class so took it here on line. I think it is good to set down every two or three years and take the on line course as it brings things out you don't always hear at a class with two or three hundred people.
bigdaddytinman 2018-03-21 09:03:31

this was a great lesson . it helps in many ways and keeps you well educated threwout the whole lesson

Good course.
dhagar 2018-03-19 21:41:58

I liked the presentation but it would be nice to have some identification pointers at certain aspects of cloud formation and not just text description.
kevincsa 2018-03-18 18:35:04

As good as the class setting for training without having to leave home!
Michaelin2 2018-03-17 21:47:02

Well thought out course.
bwarnersccf 2018-03-16 20:00:55

The examples of clouds were at times confusing. They could use more definition in the descriptions helping to identify. For example, coloraton of wall clouds, something that would definitatively identify.
keithrt 2018-03-16 11:07:07

Good review of thunderstorm basics.
CPLSeraphim 2018-03-15 19:28:16

I enjoyed this lesson. I am very interested in weather and weather patterns, but it has been some time since I had done any learning about weather, and this was a nice lesson to remember some of what I have forgotten over the years. It is also very intuitive for newcomers to weather relations and cloud formation.
561586 2018-03-15 13:43:51

ccoduto 2018-03-15 06:13:39

Some of the information covered seems advanced for just weather spotting.
Xjetjok 2018-03-14 19:28:13

Good use of videos/scenarios in lesson plan. Lots of interesting weather photographs but still photography does not give enough information (i.e. cloud rotation) to make a definitive judgement. I'm a retired pilot (31 years) flying in the Midwest and across the Great Plains. I developed a useful understanding of thunderstorms and got to observe many of them from high altitude. When you are at flight level 390 and are only "shoulder-high" to these big boys, you treat them with great respect and give them a wide berth. I've been struck by lightning three times in flight, down in terminal areas where deviations around thunderstorms are not always permitted. 2018-03-14 14:46:58

W0GUS 2018-03-13 20:25:09

If you want to join ARES, or just want to get involved with storm spotting in general, this should be a must pass class for you.
krenee0116 2018-03-13 19:21:04

Great information, but more photos of storm clouds, along with maybe arrows and labels for the photos will help in the identification of the specific parts of the storm clouds.

Identify the examples from multiple choices.
IndianaDan 2018-02-20 15:39:14

Glad I took the course, but it could use some improvements. For example, videos aren't used for judging our ability to recognize weather phenomena; still photos are used for that. This isn't a technological issue, as videos are used to present different scenarios and how to respond to them. Quiz questions and answers can seem inconsistent as well, almost as though different people wrote them with different scenarios in mind. I had to change devices (Kindle to pc) to finish course as screen kept going black. That same page also contained a coding error that left "p class="question">" at the start of one question. Still, glad I took the course. Will review the material, especially the photo quiz.

SailKing 2017-12-13 08:30:57

I believe this training is something everyone should take. It establishes a solid foundation for every citizen's understanding of what they are seeing on TV from their local weather person. More importantly is the awareness that will allow them to process weather as it occurs out of doors, in real time. To have this knowledge as a baseline or foundation and then get the classroom Storm Spotter and Community Emergency response Team (C.E.R.T.) training would make anyone a better community partner as well as a more resilient community as a whole.

Look at some of your questions. There is nothing for example that suggests you have injuries/etc requiring calling Emergency Services.

The course would be a lot more effective if videos were used showing the different types of cloud formations instead of describing what they would look like. Actually seeing rotation forming, etc. would be better.

K4DSC 2017-09-19 12:17:06

Wording of some of the questions could be clarified. There are also a few typos in the text of the lesson material.
kn4bmk 2017-09-17 15:42:38

Great lessons, only suggestion i would give instead of just talking about the images actually have animations (arrows, markers) on the images to better point out key parts of the images.
Badweatherfreak 2017-09-17 09:47:16

larscaudle 2017-09-15 07:49:42

I felt like some questions were asked before the videos. This might have been intentional to force thinking but was frustrating to me.

great pictures
GrampyD 2017-09-12 10:42:49

This lesson s is great overview of convective basics. A variety of actual photos shows you how different convective features may appear. The acronyms and handy references are useful take-away pieces. The lesson is well organized and can be completed in a minimal amount of time to allow for fitting it into a busy schedule.

Jon1979 2017-09-09 18:06:34

Rocky.Hames 2017-09-08 23:46:59

It is very informative. Maybe next time have a practice written report so that people understand. Because a written report will also mirror of the information given to the NWS.
kd9jbu 2017-09-08 01:19:58

Very informative and easy to navigate!
RayBHutch 2017-09-08 00:57:31

Terminology used in several quiz answers doesn't match terminology used in lesson. 2017-09-07 00:33:19

There were a few things on the quiz that weren't discussed in the course itself. I took extremely detailed notes, and paid very close attention, but there were definitely some things that hadn't been mentioned in the course that were on the quiz.

Questions were structured much better in this one. Less ambiguity, example - number of choices.
evanstll 2017-08-05 23:00:46

Only issue is that I wish the ending quiz had more explanation and was easier to understand what answers I answered incorrectly and what was the correct responses. Otherwise, great and easy to understand lesson. 2017-07-07 19:12:10

Outstanding program...only caveat is confusion using the program with iPad device. 2017-07-07 07:24:19

Decent course that covered the basics of storm and definitely reinforced the need for safety

I would like to be able to see what I got wrong.
gman6299 2017-06-27 01:24:39

nice format and well done with the exception of the videos. The videos should be animated to give a better understanding of the movements of updrafts and such.
whitewolf6 2017-06-25 15:54:47

This lessons teaches a great deal of structure about thunderstorms, funnel clouds, wall clouds and tornadoes and also how to use ACES as well as where you should be in a severe thunderstorm. I have been a Skywarn Spotter for 5 years and this lesson has taught me a lot to be able to report correctly and stay safe.

marioalcoser 2017-06-01 15:04:59

mweindling 2017-05-29 18:06:54

Sometimes the images and descriptions were difficult to follow; it would be useful to have particular regions of the image highlighted to show exactly WHAT led to the conclusions of the description. Other than that, everything was clear and easy to follow.

I was not always able to figure out what to look at in the pictures. For instance the I could not understand what "updraft" looked like.

Its OK 2017-05-03 14:10:28

In the Quiz section the question " What is the difference between a funnel cloud and tornado?" is extremely confusing. I got an X four different times. This means that I retook the quiz four times and each time I choose an answer for this question it still came out wrong. The correct answer is clearly not among the available possible answers. This needs to be fixed. The same goes for the very last question. 2017-05-02 13:41:30

very informative, easy to follow.
gollad 2017-05-02 11:08:11

fredlcoxiii 2017-04-26 21:42:51

The lesson provides extensive photo examples of weather along with descriptions. These are quite helpful. However, I would appreciate a clear textual description with comparison and contrast of wall clouds versus shelf clouds prior to looking at the photos.

gdpearman 2017-04-18 18:39:11

Cool School!
CSanderson71 2017-04-17 15:06:27

The format used in the SKYWARN Spotter program is outdated by 25 years. The amateurish dialogue and sound effects with single image slides is cheap, cheesey, and not at all appealing. This is 3rd grade level at best. The intentionally obtuse wording of questions is incredibly annoying and unprofessional. The goal is to educate, not see how vaguely a question can be worded. I am a writer with a PhD in psychology, so it is not a lack of education on my part. This is obtuse and absurd and childish and unprofessional. This is just like the old "junior deputy" program the police used to do in elementary schools 40 years ago. A real Barney Fife operation.
6zero5one 2017-04-17 08:34:58

Questions on quiz were better presented vs. the first module. The photo examples were very well presented.
Davis25 2017-04-17 04:35:08

Great Lesson's and very Informative. Thank You SkyWarn.
RipRipper 2017-04-16 15:53:23

Include the correct answers after the second attempt ... thanks
AmBam 2017-04-15 13:46:48

Great training. I liked the use of mixed media in presentation and quizzes. It definitely went into a lot of detail. Would be nice to throw some videos in or adding arrows or labels to the pictures to point out some harder to see areas (like updrafts). This expanded on what I learned recently at the Storm Spotting Training we took.
Shawn Chalakee Jr 2017-04-15 00:48:27

I would definitely recommend this to other students who are interested in learning more about SKYWARN Spotter Convective Basics.

This really increased my knowledge of cloud and Tornado patterns. It helped me understand what to look for and the differences between Funnel clouds, Tornados and Dust devils. 2017-04-10 15:49:51

This was a great course !

matthewblittle 2017-04-09 15:41:40

Great lessons. I would recommend this to anyone wanting to learn the basics of storm spotting, even if they are not going to be part of the SKYWARN program. Of course, please do be a part of the SKYWARN program! I have also used elements of this lesson in exams geared toward middle school/high school students, the images are particularly useful in education.
rwwilkinson 2017-04-09 11:32:55

Great course; very informative. I might add some time-lapse videos of severe weather formation.

Excellent Course
DanicaFlyte 2017-04-05 10:20:37

In-depth and informative lesson with a multitude of examples showing the difference between actual weather phenomena and look-alikes with helpful commentary describing each photograph. I appreciated the volume of examples for training purposes. (Only constructive criticism is the question about prior experience in this subject area. None of the choices were applicable as I've never had the opportunity to learn this in school, am not employed in this field, and do not teach it, yet have been active Skywarn storm spotter for years and now through ARES/RACES. I'd suggest an additional choice as that of trained volunteer.
momdavies 2017-04-04 22:06:43

ryan518 2017-04-04 15:40:32

This is the second test after the role of a skywarn spotter and this had some confusing vocab words that were hard and didnt do a very good job of explaining them but still, it had lots of scnarios with bunch of photos and life expreiences so that if you were acutually there and pick your adventure thing. Very good teaching by the practice which is why i got 93 percent on the quiz.

Awesome use of photographs with explanations of various cloud formations and weather phenomena. For someone like me who's job can take me to remote locations where we are indeed exposed to potential severe weather, this training is crucial! Well done!

chasem22 2017-03-20 09:53:14

Safety is the most important part while storm spotting; and that's not just everyone else's safety, that is your safety as well. I think it is crucial that storm spotters understand that. This learning tool teaches safety very well.
shanna52 2017-03-19 14:26:23

This course was better than the first half of the course, seemed less common sense and a better use of my time
creed moor 2017-03-19 13:12:16

I liked that not all scenarios had a right answer, the world isn't perfect
Timothyb196 2017-03-17 20:56:20

This was HARD. I'm surprised I made a 93% on it. I understand the importance of recognizing types of clouds, but I think a gallery of 155 photos all back to back without any type of individualized comments on them is excessive. After a while, your eyes just glaze over and one cloud looks like another. Also, I'd like to have seen more explanation on the difference between shelf clouds and wall clouds. To me shelf clouds look like wall clouds stacked on top of each other. The biggest thing I'd say is, I learn a lot more from listening than dry reading, so more narrative would be helpful.
ashlabee1988 2017-03-17 20:54:46

I have learned a lot and I think Im going to look into more to learn from
jrmac 2017-03-17 20:36:47

mgraczyk 2017-03-14 13:07:10

Worth reviewing by most people in general, even if only for means of educating for better general awareness relating to weather related hazards. Also helps identify importance awareness plays in personal safety BEFORE a hazardous event takes place.

I thought the lessons was a great start to becoming a Skywarn Spotter, even though the quiz was easy I received a 91 first try, I'm going to seek a local certification class with an open Q&A by trained veterans.
Vampire0198608 2017-02-22 11:32:19

I thought the lessons were very educational and that they worry about safety first is great to hear since no one want to loose their lives due to anything including the weather. The lessons were easy to follow and i was able to do them in my time instead of them being timed class that makes it easier on me but all in all a great study and recommend it to anyone that wants to learn weather safety and be a spotter.

coldwaterfe 2017-02-16 21:59:24

Ok overall
Dragonbard 2017-02-16 14:38:55

I did notice a few of the questions in the quiz part were based on one action being safer than another, however it was not as clear in the lesson itself whether running or holding out in a car is safer action, and a lot depends on what you know is coming too. It would be better to train people to act based on the kind of storm or flood coming rather than just saying staying in the car vs getting out and getting into a ditch is safer during the kind of event. In a heavy flooding area for example you would not want to get into a low ditch even if the storm were coming. It just seems that they need to clarify this point a bit better.

Just as in the other section, there isn't really useful feedback on the final quiz. In addition, some of the features (wall clouds, for example) aren't explained as clearly as I'd like. It might be helpful to open up a second tab and spend some time looking at additional photos of the various features.

I think video footage would be more beneficial than still frame photos. Also, if photos are used, then using some type of highlight or arrows to point out the specific areas of the clouds being described would be greatly beneficial.

The lesson was very educational and improved my knowledge of storms and proper storm identification, response procedure, and safety. I would have very much liked the quiz to show me the correct answers to the questions that I answered incorrectly, and if it did, it was not obvious and therefore ineffective in that sense.

Very informative.
Thunderstruck401 2016-12-11 15:06:15

adding videos with the severe weather commentaries instead of still frame shots
dhoshaw 2016-12-08 19:53:44

Invaluable information for those wanting to join Skywarn.

Awesome online class, wonderfully written, and concise!
091198tobiasa 2016-12-02 20:18:39

The module was a decent one. The voice is somewhat emotionless but the scenarios were well throughout. Might suggest adding a scenario with a male Skywarn Spotter. Equality is key in America.
mckee1dj 2016-12-01 10:51:29

This was much better because there was pictures and practical application. I think this course was much more effective than the last one
copperred 2016-11-27 10:47:56

Was informative, I would do more with the study of cloud formations.
mosesmr 2016-11-23 16:50:08

I enjoyed the on-line training modules and learned alot. I like that I can review sections again if needed.
rmilner215 2016-11-03 02:03:31

This lesson helped with my identification of several elements of weather and the hazards presented by those elements. The cause and meaning of the elements, as well of the indications of what they mean were instrumental.

I enjoyed the material but the review questions asked about material or terms that was not presented.
rdl014 2016-10-26 22:25:54

Questions and answers are somewhat confusing in the way they are presented

Shocker 2016-10-17 23:46:36

A better description of the difference between a wall cloud and a shelf cloud would be nice.
GRANT HOLCOMB 2016-10-13 20:43:18

JRReid 2016-10-13 20:07:40

I would be nice to see the images used have identifying marks indicating very specifically the areas under discussion. Overall a good training but has room for improvement for use by those with far less knowledge coming in to this.
jameshorsley1 2016-10-08 22:21:04

this was a great lesson 2016-10-05 09:50:38

Great course, its short and didnt take a lot of time but the main thing is that it held my interest. there is nothing that i can say to make it any better.
Cindylee99 2016-10-04 10:51:23

MarkSpisak 2016-09-26 07:49:03

Lesson was very informative. But I would have liked more in depth material on the clouds and wall cloud stuff?

Excellent photographs.
wildhorses 2016-09-21 16:19:29

Better writing and acting. When you have simulated radio transmissions it would be helpful to filter the audio so it sounds like a real transmission

swindlebob 2016-07-23 18:30:35

Great training! Would recommend it to anyone.
K8RMA 2016-06-22 23:21:46

Great course for gaining a basic understanding of severe weather and preparing for severe weather reporting if it ever becomes necessary. Every ham operator should be required to take this course.
kimdkus 2016-03-20 16:00:16

After being 20 miles from an F4 tornado, you bet your bottom dollar, I'm taking this class!!! i was unprepared, panicy and had no clue what to do. At least now I'm a bit more prepared. I'm going to move on to be more prepared. F4s are terrifying!!
Aametrii 2016-03-06 15:03:20

It was a good module however some of the questions and answers contained in the module itself were ambiguous and a bit too open ended for multiple choice or true/false in my opinion... The visual aspect was very good. I do agree that side by side comparison of shelf vs wall clouds (and maybe include scud and cold air funnels) would have been useful. 2016-03-02 10:53:40

Great course ! I Loved it .
DarthTaiter79 2016-02-29 21:05:19

Very informative course! I like the mixture of video, photos, reading, and mini-quizzes as the course progressed--I think it's easier to retain information when examples are shown and various methods of presenting information are used. More enjoyable too! 2016-02-10 05:50:49

Better even than the Role of the Spotter course. I'd like to see video examples of the shelf clouds mixed with an actual wall cloud(s) since you can't really tell from the stills. Really like the mixed media instruction and the questions with close possible answers that make you think.
Your Helper 2015-10-07 17:21:10

I enjoyed this module and the previous one very much. The interactivity was very fun and the views were very easy to see.
uptowngirl 2015-07-14 17:32:21

I really enjoyed this course; it was more in-depth and informative than the weather portion of my pilot ground school training. I would recommend it to anyone who likes learning about the weather.
legg 2015-06-24 20:47:15

Learning about weather patterns is very interesting, educational, and informative for daily living and helping others. Also, a great conversation with people. People always talk about the weather.
AD0NP 2015-05-09 22:01:07

Great course, makes you very aware of what is going on around you.
Bravodawg 2015-04-29 22:32:35

Very Informational! The photo presentation was excellent!
AD0NP 2015-04-04 20:20:00

Great course, well put together. Help you understand severe weather and safety for severe weather.
kbolinger 2015-03-03 00:31:30

This was very informative and helped me understand severe weather better.
rrosin 2015-02-15 14:51:04

Utah-Storm 2015-01-19 10:28:30

As a Spotter Network trained spotter, I found this helpful. The only thing I would add, are links to online further Sky Warn training to finish the training. Such as live on line training sessions etc.
KE5JVM 2014-12-16 21:25:36

Very helpful in identifying clouds and cloud formation as well as reporting criteria.
adaviner 2014-12-03 17:17:15

Taken seriously, I found this to be informational and fun. The videos were helpful and the quizzes allow you to see if you learned from it and how you did. I learned more than I expected and what I learned I can now apply to life and possibly help others. Thank you!
juststaceymc 2014-11-05 12:06:39

This course is very well done. It provides an excellent knowledge base with regard to convective weather and severe storm safety basics. The photographs and explanations of different storm cloud features are an excellent tool for learning about the severe weather associated with these types of clouds. The photo gallery is also a valuable tool for additional learning and practice.
kontikiman 2014-10-02 14:46:10

Just finished the class. Very informative. Well paced, pleasant voice - well done.
VE1WPH 2014-09-01 20:40:07

A well structured and informative resource for those of us who keep an "eye on the sky". Well done MetEd! Wayne, VE1WPH Bedford, Nova Scotia, Canada
satchman 2014-06-02 00:37:49

This was exactly what I was hoping to find in a Spotter's educational module. The material delivered and concepts explained were flawlessly easy to follow along and understand. I'll recommend this to all my friends and family even if they don't wish to be spotters. I feel that everyone should know or be informed of how to read or report dangerous weather. Most important, how to protect themselves.
skater314159 2014-05-19 14:05:08

This is great module. If you like weather and what to know: 1) what is weather spotting? 2) who can be a weather spotter? 3) what do I need to know to be a weather spotter? 4) what is ACES? how does it help me stay safe? 5) what is convection? 6) what are storm and cloud features I might see when spotting? 7) how do I make reports to the NWS? then this is the module for you! You will learn all this and more in this interesting two part class that can be taken right on your computer, where ever you are! After you take this class, you can help share knowledge of what you are seeing on the ground to your local NWS office! Who knows? You might even help saves lives and property!
Coriolis 2014-05-10 21:33:31

Excellent Module for those thinking of becoming a certified spotter. This module gives you the basics of what you will need to know. Highly recommended!
bitnbytwilight 2014-05-05 10:09:07

LOVED the course. Highly recommend to gain knowledge to keeping yourself and other safe.
Thunder Chaser 2014-04-30 21:53:40

Loved it!! Really great training mod. The only thing that I can give constructive criticism on is that the review questions were worded differently and because of that I got some questions wrong. But it wasn't that big of deal because they were only the review questions and not the quiz questions. At least the quiz and the review questions were worded the same!
joshT83 2014-04-13 15:30:16

Nice class to take you can always use this training no matter where you live it can save lives.
MartyKD8RGL 2014-04-07 14:07:49

For a life long severe weather enthusiast, and a ham operator, this class helped me understand what storm features and observations constitute a good spotter report. Now I can serve Michigan and help save lives during severe weather events/ Thanks MetED!

Excellent program with a variety of teaching styles to fit anyone's learning ability.
vwprinsesse 2014-03-03 16:08:33

This is a very useful course and employs a lot of great photographic examples to illustrate the real and look-alike phenomena Skywarn volunteers may encounter in their duties. At the end, I would highly recommend going through the Photographic quiz, think about what you see in each photo, then click for the answers to see how close you got. It took some time to do this but was extremely useful in hammering home the characteristics of clouds/storms.
cjceer 2014-02-26 17:56:45

I could better understand the information if a summary of the correct answer was presented - understand you don't want to provide exact scoring so cheating would be reduced. Good information. Thanks
bobga48 2014-02-05 11:31:51

Good information provided. Need better explanation of wrong answers on the quiz. Instead of x for x
rbusch 2014-01-28 11:53:48

very good, quiz was better than previous Skywarn training section, could use better explanation of wrong answers in quiz results
ahiah 2014-01-09 06:48:25

rneu78 2013-03-18 14:21:27

Great! DO NOT bypass the PHOTO QUIZ! This is where you put it all together with the terminology and actually seeing it! great learning tool for anybody who is interested in what is going on above our heads!...So many little tidbits in here that could save a life! well worth the time!
Badger6 2013-03-07 09:03:19

Easy, informative, important
airbusman5514 2013-03-02 19:34:12

The module is extremely easy to follow as it includes descriptions and the people in the videos are not talking so fast that you can't hear. It's nice, both of the modules are.
Aether 2013-02-11 20:15:16

The module provided a condensed overview necessary to identify convective storms and their major components. The photo galleries were a great addition and helped to connect theory with reality as well as cement the information learned. I would encourage anyone who completes this module to also read through the Weather Spotter's Field Guide provided by the NWS, as it builds on the information covered in this module and explains the life cycles of thunderstorms in more detail.
Lostinrockford 2013-02-09 21:16:17

Great course and a great way to learn storm spotting. Thanks!
gregster 2013-01-24 19:53:07

This module is SUPER great! Very informative, easy to read/understand, and realistic! It has amazing pictures that help you to visualize the different weather scenarios. This module is what helped me to become a Storm Spotter. I definitely recommend this to anyone out there! 2012-10-25 17:10:50

Very informative and interesting instruction on the safe and accurate practice of Storm Spotting. Amazing photography illustrates the various types of storm cloud formations. I recommend it to any individual who aspires to serve their community as a SKYWARN Storm Spotter.
